Oct 21, 2019

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A University of New Mexico law student is suing the school and a construction company for kicking up dust.

 KRQE-TV reports Zacary Wilson-Fetrow this month filed a lawsuit in Albuquerque District Court over public nuisance and negligence in connection with construction around the law school. Wilson-Fetrow says dust from construction caused a terrible rash and respiratory problems. He says students were never given prior warning about construction. Wilson-Fetrow is seeking around $400,000 in damages. The University of New Mexico declined to comment on the lawsuit. Wilson-Fetrow is representing himself.
